Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Stevie is trapped. In her life. In her body. And now in an eating-disorder treatment center on the dusty outskirts of the New Mexico desert.

Life in the center is regimented and intrusive, a nightmare come true. Nurses and therapists watch Stevie at mealtime, accompany her to the bathroom, and challenge her to eat the foods she’s worked so hard to avoid.

Her dad has signed her up for sixty days of treatment. But what no one knows is that Stevie doesn't plan to stay that long. There are only twenty-seven days until the anniversary of her brother Josh’s death—the death she caused. And if Stevie gets her way, there are only twenty-seven days until she too will end her life.

In this emotionally haunting and beautifully written young adult debut, Meg Haston delves into the devastating impact of trauma and loss, while posing the question: Why are some consumed by their illness while others embark on a path toward recovery?



Why I need it in my Collection:

As I was reading the synopsis I immediately knew I had to read it. This book seems to dive into two very serious topics eating disorder and suicide. I'm also very intrigued to know why our main character blames herself for her brother’s death. What book are you waiting for? Leave a comment below; I would love to hear from you.

  1. This one sounds really good. I like to read books about eating disorders, I see a lot of similarities between how their brains work, and my brain that causes me to over eat works. Great pick!
